Eduardo De Aznar (c1860-c1908)

1908 Obituary [1]

AZNAR, EDUARDO DE, Marquis de Berriz, died suddenly at his residence in Bilbao at the age of forty-eight. The deceased gentleman was the head of the firm of Aznar & Co., which was one of the oldest and largest ship-owning firms in Spain, but he had of recent years retired from ship-owning. Bilbao owed a great deal to the late Marquis, who was a great traveller, was intimately known all over the Continent, and was a linguist of no mean order, speaking five languages fluently. He was educated in England, and had numerous friends in that country. He was a keen politician, being a Senator and ex-member of the Cortes, an ex-Provincial Deputy for the province of Vizcaya; he was also ex-President of the Bilbao Chamber of Commerce, and director of many important industrial undertakings in Spain.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1898.
